With a penchant for explosive first-half offense and nationally mocked second-half collapses, Texas A&M's Mike Sherman has a lot more on his mind than the sudden Texas Farewell Tour his Aggies are on in their last official season as a Big 12 member. Much like Texas Tech last week, A&M's game Saturday against Baylor will likely be the last in the series for a long while. Sherman addressed the situation in his weekly press conference:
"Y'all always ask me that and I try to be honest in my answer. Anytime you play a football game and represent A&M it should always be extra emotionally. Maybe that's naïve on my part. It always is. Every game we play is the biggest game of the year. Certainly this is a big game. Last week Tech was our biggest game. That is just the way I look at it. I try to make every game seem very important. But this is been a great rivalry. I remember when I was an assistant coach here and James Francis and Santana Dotson, playing against those guys. Grant Teaff was the coach. So the history goes back with me as well. It's a great rivalry, there's no question.
